  • 2019 World Championship

    The Breeders’ Cup World Championship is one of the most prestigious horse racing events in the world, it serves as the year-end championship for North American Thoroughbred racing, and top racehorses from all over the world travel to the United States to compete. The event goes on for two days where spectators bet approximately 150 million dollars. The competition occurs once per year, it travels to different tracks throughout the United States each year — the 2019 World Championship will return to the legendary Santa Anita Park  which currently holds the record for hosting the most Breeders’ Cups in history.

    Santa Anita Park

    Santa Anita Park, built in 1934, was California’s first racetrack. It is immediately recognizable for its iconic design, a combination of Colonial Revival and Streamline Moderne architectural styles; rows of tall palm trees and the San Gabriel Mountains in the background.

    Santa Anita Park in Popular Culture

    Santa Anita Park initiated many innovations that are now standard in Thoroughbred horse racing, such as the use of starting gates and photo finishes for every race. The races at Santa Anita attracted Hollywood starlets Betty Grable, Lana Turner and Jane Russell; and leading man Cary Grant regularly attended the races.
